thanks for the packaging!

So far, I've been able only to download and use the latest slinky
0.3.96 iso (due to unexpected ISP problems here....). I have forwarded
your message to the guy in charge of the meeting tomorrow, however.
They have ADSL, and could be able to download everything anyway. With
any luck, we will test all the updates live tomorrow.

In parallel, I have managed to:

   install  slinky 0.3.96 on my P133 32 MHz laptop (~433 MB taken)
   work out all the dependencies to add KOffice 1.2 (from vanilla RH9
   update the RULE presentation with KOffice

In other words, tomorrow:

   I'll make the initial speech on giving new life to new hardware....
	from slides off a modern office suite running in 32 MB!

   update that laptop, and other PCs, with standard procedures from
   your latest ISOs!

Looking good...

I'll report in detail about slinky-0.3.96 install, and some other
quirks next week.
